Insight: News Network / Alhambra Theatre / "The Bedside Manifesto" / "Master Harold and the Boys"

Published April 9, 2013

News Network - The drawings and collages of an artist who produced all his surviving works in an Auburn mental institution are on prominent display at the Philadelphia Museum of Art through June 9. Joining us to explain just how highly regarded this art has become is Auburn Journal Staff Writer Gus Thompson, who will talk about this and other issues in the foothills. We'll also get an update on Sacramento's Turn Downtown Around from the Sacramento Press' Jared Goyette. And Jim Smith, the editor of the Daily Democrat in Woodland, tells us the latest news happening in his city.

Alhambra Theatre - Forty years ago, the Alhambra Theatre in Midtown Sacramento was torn down to make room for a Safeway store. We'll talk about the failed effort in April 1973 to save one of the area's historic movie theaters with former Sacramento County Supervisor Pat Melarkey and lawyer Maurice Read, both of whom were on the frontlines of the fight.

"The Bedside Manifesto" - Dr. Jeff Kane is the facilitator of the patient support program at the Sierra Nevada Cancer Center in Grass Valley and founded the program at Sutter Cancer Center. He's also the author of a couple of books that focus on health, including his most recent "The Bedside Manifesto," which is about "the venerable - and fading - beside manner." We'll talk with Kane about his book and his work with patients.

"Master Harold and the Boys" - The latest production at Sacramento Theatre Company's Polluck Stage just received four stars from Sacramento Bee Theater Critic Marcus Breton. The title character is played by the teenage Will Block, who has been a member of STC's young performer's program for years. He joins us in studio with STC Education Director Michele Hellen-Nouferk to talk about his experiences in youth theater and what he thinks of his starring role.
